Osama bin Laden's son-in-law was sentenced Tuesday to life in prison for acting as al-Qaida's spokesman after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.Sulaiman Abu Ghaith was the highest-ranking al-Qaida figure to face trial on U.S. soil since the attacks. Abu Ghaith was convicted in March on conspiracy charges that he answered Osama bin Laden's request in the hours after the attacks to speak on the widely circulated videos used to recruit new followers willing to go on suicide missions like the 19 who hijacked four commercial jets on Sept. 11 .Jurors also saw frames of a video made Sept. 12, 2001, in which Abu Ghaith was seated next to bin Laden and two other top al-Qaida leaders as they tried to justify the attacks.
